This might be the most competitive of all the awards, as there was a huge stack of great screenplays this year. There is an argument to be made for all of these nominees, so the separation between them is not that much. Plus, this list is just a small sample of terrific work in 2016.
Damien Chazelle, La La Land
Eric Heisserer, Arrival
Taylor Sheridan, Hell or High Water
Barry Jenkins, Moonlight
Tom Ford, Nocturnal Animals
Shane Black and Anthony Bagarozzi, The Nice Guys

It's that time of year again to look at what I thought was the best there was out there the past year. Unfortunately, and fortunately, I had another life change this year, a son that was born in November, which obviously kept me away from the theaters a bit the last two months. Still, I saw quite a bit that is worthy of praise in 2016, and today we kick it off with the Best Foreign Language Film of 2016.
Embrace of the Serpent, directed by Ciro Guerra Under the Shadow, directed by Babak Anvari My King, directed by Maiwenn Rams, directed by Grimur Hakonarson The Measure of a Man, directed by Stephane Brize
